heel: When people say these books are children's books, as if to demean them, I balk. These books dealt with themes that adults do not fully understand or wish to. It dealt with racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, prejudice, and general ignorance. These books taught us that it doesn't matter how you were raised, but at you get to choose to be kind, loyal, brave, and true. They taught us to be strong u nder the pressures of this world and to hold fast to what we know to be right. These books taught me so much, they changed me as a person. So just ause they're set against a fantastical backdrop with young protagonists does not mean that their value is any less real This First book Starts with the double murder of a pair of twenty-one year olds who e much missed and leaving their baby son a war orphan abusive conditions that would give Cinderella the horrors. Dealing with peers and teachers who are bulies. The fickleness of fame (from the darling of Gryffindor to the outcast.) The idea that there are things worth fighting and dying for, spoken by the child protagonist. Three children promptly acting on that willingness to sacrifice their lives, and two of them getting injured doing so Second book. The equivalent of racism with the pro-pureblood attitude by an eleven year old girl being groomed and then used by a charming, handsome older male. The imbalance of power and resultant abuse inherent in slavery. Fraud perpetuated by stealing something very intimate. Plot driven hird book: The equivalent of ableism with a decent, kind and competant adult being considered less than human because he has an illness that adversely affects his behaviour at certain times. A justice system that is the opposite of just. Promises of removing an abused child from the abusive environment can't always be kept. The innocent suffer while the guilty thrive. Fouth book: More fickleness of fame. The privileged mistreating and undermining the underprivileged because they can. A master punishing a slave for his own misjudgment, and the slave blaming herself. A sports tournament which involves mortal risk being cheered by spectators. A wonderful young man being murdered y because he was in the way. A young boy being tortured, humilated and nearly murdered. Fifth book: PTSD in the teenage protagonist. Severe depression in the protagonist's godfather, triggered by inherited mental health issues and being forced to stay in a house where abuse occured. A bigoted tyrant who lives to crush everyone under her heel, torturing a teenager for telling the truth in the name of the government (and trying to suck his soul out too). The discovery that your idols can feet of clay after all. An effort to save the life of someone dear and precious actually costing that very same life. The loss of a father-figure and the resultant guilt Sixth book: The idea that a soul can be broken beyond repair. Drugs with the potential for date rape are shown as having achieved exactly that in at least one case, resulting in a pregnancy. Well-meaning chauvinism trying to control the lo life of a young woman. Internalised prejuidce resulting in refusing the one you love out of lack of love but out of fear of tainting them. The mortality of those that seem powerful and larger than life Seventh book Bad situations can get worse, to the point where even the end up suffering and afraid.

heel: When people say these books are children's books, as if to demean them, I balk.
 These books dealt with themes that adults do not fully understand or wish to. It
 dealt with racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, prejudice, and general
 ignorance. These books taught us that it doesn't matter how you were raised, but
 at you get to choose to be kind, loyal, brave, and true. They taught us to be
 strong u
 nder the pressures of this world and to hold fast to what we know to be
 right. These books taught me so much, they changed me as a person. So just
 ause they're set against a fantastical backdrop with young protagonists does
 not mean that their value is any less real
 This
 First book Starts with the double murder of a pair of twenty-one year olds who
 e much missed and leaving their baby son a war orphan
 abusive conditions that would give Cinderella the horrors. Dealing with peers and
 teachers who are bulies. The fickleness of fame (from the darling of Gryffindor to
 the outcast.) The idea that there are things worth fighting and dying for, spoken by
 the child protagonist. Three children promptly acting on that willingness to sacrifice
 their lives, and two of them getting injured doing so
 Second book. The equivalent of racism with the pro-pureblood attitude
 by an eleven year old girl being groomed and then used by a charming, handsome
 older male. The imbalance of power and resultant abuse inherent in slavery. Fraud
 perpetuated by stealing something very intimate.
 Plot driven
 hird book: The equivalent of ableism with a decent, kind and competant adult
 being considered less than human because he has an illness that adversely
 affects his behaviour at certain times. A justice system that is the opposite of just.
 Promises of removing an abused child from the abusive environment can't always
 be kept. The innocent suffer while the guilty thrive.
 Fouth book: More fickleness of fame. The privileged mistreating and undermining
 the underprivileged because they can. A master punishing a slave for his own
 misjudgment, and the slave blaming herself. A sports tournament which involves
 mortal risk being cheered by spectators. A wonderful young man being murdered
 y because he was in the way. A young boy being tortured, humilated and
 nearly murdered.
 Fifth book: PTSD in the teenage protagonist. Severe depression in the
 protagonist's godfather, triggered by inherited mental health issues and being
 forced to stay in a house where abuse occured. A bigoted tyrant who lives to crush
 everyone under her heel, torturing a teenager for telling the truth in the name of the
 government (and trying to suck his soul out too). The discovery that your idols can
 feet of clay after all. An effort to save the life of someone dear and precious
 actually costing that very same life. The loss of a father-figure and the resultant
 guilt
 Sixth book: The idea that a soul can be broken beyond repair. Drugs with the
 potential for date rape are shown as having achieved exactly that in at least one
 case, resulting in a pregnancy. Well-meaning chauvinism trying to control the lo
 life of a young woman. Internalised prejuidce resulting in refusing the one you love
 out of lack of love but out of fear of tainting them. The mortality of those that
 seem powerful and larger than life
 Seventh book Bad situations can get worse, to the point where even the
 end up suffering and afraid. More internalised prejudice and feaf hysterical terror of
 ting those you love. Self-sacrifice and the loss of loved ones, EVERYWHE
 se who are bitter are often so with a reason. The necessity of defeating yo
 inner demons, even though it's never as cool as it sounds. Don't underestimate
 those that are enslaved. Other people's culture isn't always like your own. Things
 often come full circle (war ending with the death of a dearly-loved pair of new
 parents and their orphaned baby son living with his dead mother's blood relative
 instead of his young godfather). Even if all is well' the world is still imperfect,
 because it's full of us brilliant imperfect humans.

Like, the wives are baking (questionable) brownies together, the kids are playing together, Antler Guy occasionally takes Son and Timmy to school (no car, just carries them in huge swinging strides through a nexus of ungoldly sights in a swirling netherworld shortcut. Sometimes they stop for McDonalds). Hell-wife gave them a potted Audrey Jr., Steve鈥檚 wife (who I now christen Sharon) gave them a begonia. One time Steve tries throwing holy water but all Antler Guy does is thank him, saying that no, Antler Guy isn鈥檛 Catholic but it鈥檚 the thought that counts, he is so kind to water his creeping deathshade vines regardless. For Christmas Antler Guy gives Steve a case of ammunition. To be funny/sarcastically mean Steve gets Antler Guy the world鈥檚 most hideous Christmas sweater, singing light-up reindeer included. He immediately regrets it because not only does Antler Guy love it and wears it for several months, it will never need batteries because Antler Guy powers it with his own eldritch aura. When they come back from a holiday to Hawaii, Steve is horrified to find out Sharon bought them matching Hawaiian shirts. He is even more horrified that his wife means it that if he doesn鈥檛 wear it he will forever sleep on the couch. I want to expand on this, since I see it鈥檚 still passing around and the ideas have grown in my brainmeats. What drives Steve up the wall and down the other side is how鈥 normal鈥 everyone treats the Abominations. (Yes, that is their last name. No, it is not a joke. Son was asked his last name for the standardized testing at school, had a quick conference with Timmy, and decided that Son Abomination sounded good, 鈥淪ince my dad calls your dad the Abomination anyway and we can paint it on your mailbox just like the Henderson鈥檚 did theirs!鈥. Antler Guy agreed and did a lovely rendition of it for the mailbox, with only a few glyphs of soul-rending terror added to keep up to snuff.) The Great Plant Exchange went beautifully, though the Audrey Jr. (named Aubergine for the lovely shade of purple poison that drips from her fangs) is on a diet at the moment. She was in cahoots with the cat and the dog to get into the good people food and ate two frozen turkeys all herself. Now she鈥檚 restricted to the hallway table to answer the phone and the door. (Steve actually likes her, and keeps slipping her hotdogs when Sharon isn鈥檛 looking. Their door-to-door salesman rates have dropped dramatically since she changed abodes.) Hell-wife has almost gotten the begonia to bloom and say it鈥檚 first words. The homeowner鈥檚 association just loves the Abominations. All paperwork stamped and dotted, in on time and in triplicate. Antler Guy likes filing, says it reminds him of his old job. There is a resident who spent 20 years as a lawyer and they have long, animated conversations about all sorts of things that make Steve swear to never need legal counsel. Hell-wife joined the PTA and spearheaded a committee to fundraise in the fall with a haunted house. It was a county-wide hit, though the claims that a particularly rowdy group had been deliberately lost in a timeslip to the Outer Doors Of Chaos was firmly rebuffed. Most young people nowadays, it was agreed, just couldn鈥檛 appreciate flute music. Antler Guy really does try to connect with Steve. The surprise birthday party was perhaps a bit much, given that most participants do not have the ability to suddenly materialize in front of the guest of honor to give them a hug. Sharon assured them that Steve normally screams on his birthday, and the remains of the cake were heartily enjoyed by all. (A plate was saved for Steve once he came down from the treehouse.) After the Hawaii trip (which was a present for his birthday) and the Matching Shirt Ultimatum (which was Sharon鈥檚 attempt at patching things up with Antler Guy, he really was sad about the birthday screaming), Steve finally grabs his courage in both hands (plus the shotgun, which let鈥檚 face it is about as useful as a teddybear at the moment but it does comfort him) and confronts Antler Guy, about why such a group of鈥︹bominations could possibly come to his quiet slice of suburban bliss. 鈥溾︹UT NEIGHBOR STEVE, WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN HERE.鈥 鈥淣o no no, I read it in a book! Don鈥檛 you have to be invited or something?!鈥 鈥淲ELL YES, TO THE HUMAN WORLD. BUT THIS IS NOT THE HUMAN WORLD AS YOUR THREE-DIMENSIONAL BRAIN PERCEIVES IT.鈥 鈥淲hat the hell does that mean?!!鈥 鈥淒ID YOU NOT KNOW, NEIGHBOR STEVE? LEGALLY SPEAKING, ALL OF THE VASTNESS OF HUMAN SUBURBIA IS, IN FACT, A PART OF HELL.鈥 鈥溾︹..鈥 鈥淭HE FLAMINGOES ARE THE BOUNDARY MARKERS. IT WAS DECIDED THAT THE FLAMING SKULLS WERE TOO KITSCHY FOR MODERN TIMES.鈥 Reblogging cause I kind of want more of this鈥. Since you asked nicely ^_^ Antler Guy, as one may have noticed, is a calm sort of fellow. In the face of human atrocities he displays a curious Zen sort of state of mind. Timmy asks Son if he鈥檇 ever seen his dad angry, and Son hasn鈥檛. (When asked, Timmy says that yeah his dad gets mad, but it鈥檚 like the Fitz-Simmon鈥檚 chihuahua down the street- mostly high-pitched noise and occasionally TV remote chewing. Sharon replaces the poor thing every 3 months or so.) When pressed (gently, at the monthly book club, and with many cups of tea and at least one daiquiri), Hellwife admits that this comes from serving many years at his old job. After the revelation of the nature of his neighborhood, Steve has not been overtly mean to Antler Guy. Not yet in the realm of friends, but vastly better than before. No more holy water, no more shotgun blasts. (Still the occasional jumpscare, but Antler Guy really can鈥檛 help that part.) They even occasionally share news over the fence as Antler Guy trains the creeping deathshade vines in proper oral hygiene, and Steve waters his lawn (and occasionally slips a goldfish cracker to a deathshade vine that looks particularly adorable. Aubergine has trained him well.) Which is how Antler Guy learns about the peeping tom that鈥檚 been plaguing the adjacent streets. Apparently the pervert has been getting bolder, and rattling doors. He almost broke into one apartment, whose occupants were a single mother and her daughter, Mildred. Millie, a shy girl who is a great horror fan and firm friends with Timmy and Son, had missed school because of it. Steve knew because Sharon had told him, on her way to deliver a tuna casserole and a double batch of brownies to the pair. (Sharon has been dubbed the unoffical mob boss of the Mother鈥檚 Mafia. She is quite pleased with this title.) He tells her to wait, confers briefly with Aubergine, and sends her along with,聽鈥淥nly as a loan, you know, but Auby wants to stretch her roots and she鈥檇 probably like getting all ribboned and curled anyway. Little girls still do that, right?鈥 She has strict orders to bite anyone that makes Millie or her mother cry. (Steve is dubbed the official neighborhood marshmallow for this. The bookclub buys him a jar of marshmallow fluff in commemoration.) He turns to look at Antler Guy, and freezes, much as a chihuahua will when faced with a hungry hellhound. 鈥淵ou鈥.you alright there buddy?鈥 鈥淣虒虓虁虁蛦瞳虙炭虅蜅痰檀汀蜆蜐太太虣蜋袒虨蛨太胎酞瘫蛨蛨摊蛥O虋蛻虘蛼處蛻虄同铜彤虆虜虇虄虊童虈蜅蛝覊蛝蜔痰蛥袒虦虨蛪虩蜋蜌袒酞碳號.蜅亭庭蛢蜅同蛢虅蛫蛢虆虗桐彤艇亭探虗痰蛨蹋蛨虣蹋虦袒汰泰虧虪虨 鈥 鈥淯h, yeah, I guess not.

When Steve sees a shadowy form in his back yard when he gets up to pee that night, there鈥檚 no hesitation. He grabs the shotgun from the cabinet and peeks out the back door window. Just in time to see a nebulous form of soul-wrenching terror engulf the man reaching for the door handle. A sliver of moonlight reveals a very familiar eyesocket. After a moment (and a sincere prayer of thanks that he had already peed, cause otherwise he鈥檇 have done it then and there) Steve opens the door.

Millie brings back Aubergine and spends an entire afternoon teaching Steve the particulars of Augy鈥檚 new 鈥渉airstyle鈥 (a gravity-defying mass of teased tendrils, ribbons, and barrettes) in between games of tag and hide-and-seek with Timmy and Son. When Antler Guy and Hellwife present her and her mother Beatrice with a tiny Audrey Jr. (鈥漰OOr ThinG Is a ruNT And wOn鈥橳 geT MorE Than A FooT taLL, BEa, aNd NeeDS a New FRiEnD鈥, assures Hellwife), both mother and child burst out crying. Millie names it Bella, after Bella Lugosi, and shows it to the excited group of boys (Steve and Augy included). IT GOT SO MUCH BETTER!!!! Life in a subdivision partly populated with eldritch and possibly magical (officially classified as 鈥渆xtra-dimensional鈥, for even when faced with the physics-defying nature of their new co-habitating citizens the government cannot bring itself to acknowledge them as 鈥渕agic wielding hell-beasts鈥, as some high-ranking staff members initially suggested) goes on fairly normally. Sure, there are a few hiccoughs. The creeping deathshade vines get a stern talking to about appropriate afternoon snacks (鈥漀OT the Fitz-Simmon鈥檚 chihuahua, I don鈥檛 care how much he has it coming or what he excreted where, now spit it out!鈥), Aubergine sheds all her leaves at once and snowballs the house (but does helps sweep up afterwards), and moonrise is a good time to watch the night-gaunts fly by (but on moondark it鈥檚 best to stay inside, no matter how prettily they glow. They鈥檙e somewhat similar to fireflies, and don鈥檛 always check to see if their partner glows as well. It wouldn鈥檛 be as much of a problem if they didn鈥檛 dive mid-coitus and drop just above the ground.) While the neighborhood in general is accepting of the Abominations, when things get to be a bit much they tend to come to Steve. Since meeting Beatrice and Millie (and the formation of the Terrifying Triad known as Millie, Son, and Timmy) Steve is the adult human male most comfortable dealing with Antler Guy on the whole street. (Sharon as U.M.B. is widely held to have, well, steel-whatever-the-hell-she-wants, and Timmy is known to run over to Antler Guy and ask for rides through 鈥渢hat wobbly grey place, you know, the one with the REALLY BIG alligators?鈥. Still, the courtesies must be observed.) So when a writhing sparking ball of snarling terror and teeth takes up residence in the Manzo鈥檚 tool-shed, and when Animal Control refuses to come (the street is banned due to a run-in with the deathshade vines), Steve is called. Having heard the description, Steve brings Antler Guy. When they get there, Mr. Manzo is forcibly holding the door shut. Unholy yowling is coming from inside. At a gesture from Antler Guy, Mr. Manzo leaps away, and the doors blast open. A 150 pound ball of whimpering, flaming something hits Steve and knocks him on his ass. The whimpering, flaming something proceeds to slobber all over Steve, his shirt, his pants, and a decent portion of grass in between distressed yelps. 鈥淕ACK!鈥 鈥淣EIGHBOR STEVE, ARE YOU IN DISTRESS?鈥 鈥淕AAACKLEARGHSPLUH- DOWN boy, HEEL, that鈥檚 a good- Antler Guy, what is this?!鈥 鈥淚 BELIEVE IT IS A HELLHOUND, NEIGHBOR STEVE.鈥 鈥淕ood grief, I didn鈥檛 know they came this big and鈥..and鈥..

IT WILL TAKE TIME FOR HIM TO GROW TO HIS FULL SIZE.鈥 鈥溾︹︹ 鈥淭HE SMALL BREEDS GROW MORE SLOWLY.鈥 A vile hissing emanates from the shed. (Mr. Manzo has long since fled for the safety of his kitchen.) As Steve attempts to calm the frantic hell-puppy, Antler Guy investigates. He reaches one long hand in behind the riding lawnmower and鈥.. winces. 鈥淣EIGHBOR STEVE?鈥 鈥淵eah- I鈥檓 right here, uh, doggie, not going anywhere- Guy?鈥 鈥淚 APPEAR TO HAVE AN鈥. ATTACHMENT.鈥 Steve is awed at the tiny ball of white fluff attached to one long, thin finger. He didn鈥檛 know that Antler Guy鈥檚 fingers COULD be bitten, much less by a tiny kitten. Which is how Steve and Sharon got Clifford (鈥滱ww c鈥檓on Sharon, how could I pass that one up?鈥), and Antler Guy and Hellwife get Fluffy (鈥漀EIGHBOR STEVE ASSURES ME IT IS A TRADITIONAL TITLE.鈥) This might be the most amazing thing that ever crossed my tumblr dash OMIGOSH I鈥檓 in love.

Hell-wife joined the PTA and spearheaded a committee to fundraise in the fall with a haunted house. It was a county-wide hit, though the claims that a particularly rowdy group had been deliberately lost in a timeslip to the Outer Doors Of Chaos was firmly rebuffed. Most young people nowadays, it was agreed, just couldn鈥檛 appreciate flute music.
Antler Guy really does try to connect with Steve. The surprise birthday party was perhaps a bit much, given that most participants do not have the ability to suddenly materialize in front of the guest of honor to give them a hug. Sharon assured them that Steve normally screams on his birthday, and the remains of the cake were heartily enjoyed by all. (A plate was saved for Steve once he came down from the treehouse.)
After the Hawaii trip (which was a present for his birthday) and the Matching Shirt Ultimatum (which was Sharon鈥檚 attempt at patching things up with Antler Guy, he really was sad about the birthday screaming), Steve finally grabs his courage in both hands (plus the shotgun, which let鈥檚 face it is about as useful as a teddybear at the moment but it does comfort him) and confronts Antler Guy, about why such a group of鈥︹bominations could possibly come to his quiet slice of suburban bliss.
鈥溾︹UT NEIGHBOR STEVE, WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN HERE.鈥
鈥淣o no no, I read it in a book! Don鈥檛 you have to be invited or something?!鈥
鈥淲ELL YES, TO THE HUMAN WORLD. BUT THIS IS NOT THE HUMAN WORLD AS YOUR THREE-DIMENSIONAL BRAIN PERCEIVES IT.鈥
鈥淲hat the hell does that mean?!!鈥
鈥淒ID YOU NOT KNOW, NEIGHBOR STEVE? LEGALLY SPEAKING, ALL OF THE VASTNESS OF HUMAN SUBURBIA IS, IN FACT, A PART OF HELL.鈥
鈥溾︹..鈥
鈥淭HE FLAMINGOES ARE THE BOUNDARY MARKERS. IT WAS DECIDED THAT THE FLAMING SKULLS WERE TOO KITSCHY FOR MODERN TIMES.鈥

Reblogging cause I kind of want more of this鈥.


Since you asked nicely ^_^
Antler Guy, as one may have noticed, is a calm sort of fellow. In the face of human atrocities he displays a curious Zen sort of state of mind. Timmy asks Son if he鈥檇 ever seen his dad angry, and Son hasn鈥檛. (When asked, Timmy says that yeah his dad gets mad, but it鈥檚 like the Fitz-Simmon鈥檚 chihuahua down the street- mostly high-pitched noise and occasionally TV remote chewing. Sharon replaces the poor thing every 3 months or so.) When pressed (gently, at the monthly book club, and with many cups of tea and at least one daiquiri), Hellwife admits that this comes from serving many years at his old job.
After the revelation of the nature of his neighborhood, Steve has not been overtly mean to Antler Guy. Not yet in the realm of friends, but vastly better than before. No more holy water, no more shotgun blasts. (Still the occasional jumpscare, but Antler Guy really can鈥檛 help that part.) They even occasionally share news over the fence as Antler Guy trains the creeping deathshade vines in proper oral hygiene, and Steve waters his lawn (and occasionally slips a goldfish cracker to a deathshade vine that looks particularly adorable. Aubergine has trained him well.)
Which is how Antler Guy learns about the peeping tom that鈥檚 been plaguing the adjacent streets. Apparently the pervert has been getting bolder, and rattling doors. He almost broke into one apartment, whose occupants were a single mother and her daughter, Mildred. Millie, a shy girl who is a great horror fan and firm friends with Timmy and Son, had missed school because of it.
Steve knew because Sharon had told him, on her way to deliver a tuna casserole and a double batch of brownies to the pair. (Sharon has been dubbed the unoffical mob boss of the Mother鈥檚 Mafia. She is quite pleased with this title.) He tells her to wait, confers briefly with Aubergine, and sends her along with,聽鈥淥nly as a loan, you know, but Auby wants to stretch her roots and she鈥檇 probably like getting all ribboned and curled anyway. Little girls still do that, right?鈥 She has strict orders to bite anyone that makes Millie or her mother cry. (Steve is dubbed the official neighborhood marshmallow for this. The bookclub buys him a jar of marshmallow fluff in commemoration.)
He turns to look at Antler Guy, and freezes, much as a chihuahua will when faced with a hungry hellhound.
鈥淵ou鈥.you alright there buddy?鈥

鈥淩ight. Um. Well.鈥 
Steven makes a very ungraceful exit when space starts bending around Antler Guy鈥檚 still, unmoving form.
When Steve sees a shadowy form in his back yard when he gets up to pee that night, there鈥檚 no hesitation. He grabs the shotgun from the cabinet and peeks out the back door window.
Just in time to see a nebulous form of soul-wrenching terror engulf the man reaching for the door handle. A sliver of moonlight reveals a very familiar eyesocket. After a moment (and a sincere prayer of thanks that he had already peed, cause otherwise he鈥檇 have done it then and there) Steve opens the door. The nebulous form freezes, reality bending around the edges.
鈥淣ice night for it, huh?鈥

鈥淎nytime.鈥
There are no more peeping reports. Millie brings back Aubergine and spends an entire afternoon teaching Steve the particulars of Augy鈥檚 new 鈥渉airstyle鈥 (a gravity-defying mass of teased tendrils, ribbons, and barrettes) in between games of tag and hide-and-seek with Timmy and Son.
When Antler Guy and Hellwife present her and her mother Beatrice with a tiny Audrey Jr. (鈥漰OOr ThinG Is a ruNT And wOn鈥橳 geT MorE Than A FooT taLL, BEa, aNd NeeDS a New FRiEnD鈥, assures Hellwife), both mother and child burst out crying. Millie names it Bella, after Bella Lugosi, and shows it to the excited group of boys (Steve and Augy included).


IT GOT SO MUCH BETTER!!!!

Life in a subdivision partly populated with eldritch and possibly magical (officially classified as 鈥渆xtra-dimensional鈥, for even when faced with the physics-defying nature of their new co-habitating citizens the government cannot bring itself to acknowledge them as 鈥渕agic wielding hell-beasts鈥, as some high-ranking staff members initially suggested) goes on fairly normally. 
Sure, there are a few hiccoughs. The creeping deathshade vines get a stern talking to about appropriate afternoon snacks (鈥漀OT the Fitz-Simmon鈥檚 chihuahua, I don鈥檛 care how much he has it coming or what he excreted where, now spit it out!鈥), Aubergine sheds all her leaves at once and snowballs the house (but does helps sweep up afterwards), and moonrise is a good time to watch the night-gaunts fly by (but on moondark it鈥檚 best to stay inside, no matter how prettily they glow. They鈥檙e somewhat similar to fireflies, and don鈥檛 always check to see if their partner glows as well. It wouldn鈥檛 be as much of a problem if they didn鈥檛 dive mid-coitus and drop just above the ground.)
While the neighborhood in general is accepting of the Abominations, when things get to be a bit much they tend to come to Steve. Since meeting Beatrice and Millie (and the formation of the Terrifying Triad known as Millie, Son, and Timmy) Steve is the adult human male most comfortable dealing with Antler Guy on the whole street. (Sharon as U.M.B. is widely held to have, well, steel-whatever-the-hell-she-wants, and Timmy is known to run over to Antler Guy and ask for rides through 鈥渢hat wobbly grey place, you know, the one with the REALLY BIG alligators?鈥. Still, the courtesies must be observed.)
So when a writhing sparking ball of snarling terror and teeth takes up residence in the Manzo鈥檚 tool-shed, and when Animal Control refuses to come (the street is banned due to a run-in with the deathshade vines), Steve is called. Having heard the description, Steve brings Antler Guy.
When they get there, Mr. Manzo is forcibly holding the door shut. Unholy yowling is coming from inside. At a gesture from Antler Guy, Mr. Manzo leaps away, and the doors blast open.
A 150 pound ball of whimpering, flaming something hits Steve and knocks him on his ass. The whimpering, flaming something proceeds to slobber all over Steve, his shirt, his pants, and a decent portion of grass in between distressed yelps.
鈥淕ACK!鈥
鈥淣EIGHBOR STEVE, ARE YOU IN DISTRESS?鈥
鈥淕AAACKLEARGHSPLUH- DOWN boy, HEEL, that鈥檚 a good- Antler Guy, what is this?!鈥
鈥淚 BELIEVE IT IS A HELLHOUND, NEIGHBOR STEVE.鈥
鈥淕ood grief, I didn鈥檛 know they came this big and鈥..and鈥.. Guy?鈥
鈥淵ES NEIGHBOR STEVE?鈥
鈥淚s he supposed to be鈥..skinless?鈥
鈥淵ES NEIGHBOR STEVE. THIS VARIETY WAS BRED TO BE LAP DOGS. THEIR FLAME IS MOSTLY WITHOUT HEAT, AND THEY HAVE NO SKIN FOR THOSE WHO ARE ALLERGIC.鈥
鈥溾︹.laPDOG?!鈥
鈥淵ES NEIGHBOR STEVE.鈥 Antler Guy lays a hand on the hellhound, who tries to burrow further into Steve with little success. 鈥淗E APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN RECENTLY WEANED. IT WILL TAKE TIME FOR HIM TO GROW TO HIS FULL SIZE.鈥
鈥溾︹︹
鈥淭HE SMALL BREEDS GROW MORE SLOWLY.鈥
A vile hissing emanates from the shed. (Mr. Manzo has long since fled for the safety of his kitchen.) As Steve attempts to calm the frantic hell-puppy, Antler Guy investigates. He reaches one long hand in behind the riding lawnmower and鈥.. winces.
鈥淣EIGHBOR STEVE?鈥
鈥淵eah- I鈥檓 right here, uh, doggie, not going anywhere- Guy?鈥
鈥淚 APPEAR TO HAVE AN鈥. ATTACHMENT.鈥
Steve is awed at the tiny ball of white fluff attached to one long, thin finger. He didn鈥檛 know that Antler Guy鈥檚 fingers COULD be bitten, much less by a tiny kitten.
Which is how Steve and Sharon got Clifford (鈥滱ww c鈥檓on Sharon, how could I pass that one up?鈥), and Antler Guy and Hellwife get Fluffy (鈥漀EIGHBOR STEVE ASSURES ME IT IS A TRADITIONAL TITLE.鈥)


This might be the most amazing thing that ever crossed my tumblr dash


OMIGOSH I鈥檓 in love.


I LOVE EVERY BIT OF THIS

This is like the stoplight post. It is Tumblr legend, and I feel I must reblog it for those fortunate few who get to experience it for the first time.
